“Will you marry me?” Marshal asked. He was down on one knee,
offering a glittering band nestled in a black velvet case.
Sage stared into the eyes of her soon-to-be fiancé. As she stood under the
stage lights, beads of sweat built up on her forehead as Marshal waited for
Marshal was an arguably attractive man. His surgically repaired eyesight
allowed his hazel eyes to shine without the hindrance of the large frames he’d
sported in college. The bright ring lights, which helped illuminate the live
feed of his social media, outlined Marshal’s irises. The proposal was a timed
